We are compiling a list of the BEST Balloon Festivals in the USA! (http://bit.ly/BalloonFestivals)

Hot air balloon festivals are held annually, throughout the year, all over the USA and the world. We are currently working on updating our calendar for 2018 balloon festivals (the ones with actual dates have been confirmed and the others just list the month that they were in this year), to be held in 25 states across the USA. We will be adding to this list and updating our embeddable calendar at the end of 2017. The list view is sortable by balloon festival name, state, and date. If you do come across one that we missed, please link to it in the comments below!

Appalachian Trail :: New York

On the 90 mile portion of the New York trail, you may see types of wildlife you weren’t expecting! The trail passes by the Trailside Museum and Zoo at Bear Mountain. At 124 feet, Bear Mountain is also the lowest elevation point on the entire trail and the Bear Mountain State Park section is the oldest section of the trail, completed in 1923.

Appalachian Trail :: New Jersey

The 72-mile long New Jersey section of the trail crosses bogs, wetlands, and a wildlife sanctuary that features a wide spectrum of bird species. This surprises many hikers considering the trail’s close proximity to major cities. Other highlights of the NJ section are the mile long Pochuck Boardwalk and the 110 foot long suspension bridge.

Appalachian Trail :: Pennsylvania

The 229 mile Pennsylvania portion of the trail is the least popular of all the states and is often skipped entirely. The trail passes through game lands managed for hunting, so fall may not be the best time to go (possibly another reason it is unpopular!); additionally, all hunters and non-hunters are required to wear at least 250 square inches of fluorescent orange material on the head, chest and back combined, or a fluorescent orange hat, from November 15 to December 15.

Of course, if you skip it, you can’t take a selfie at the midpoint!

And... you wouldn't see this...

Appalachian Trail :: Maryland

The Maryland portion of the trail is a fairly easy section following a 40-mile route along the backbone of South Mountain, a north-south ridge that extends from Pennsylvania to the Potomac River.

The trail runs through the eastern edge of Greenbrier State Park and along the C&O Canal Towpath route for 3 miles. Hikers will also pass High Rock, which offers spectacular views and is a popular hang-gliding site.

Appalachian Trail :: West Virginia

The West Virginia section of the trail is a quick 4 miles (not including the 20 miles that run along the Virginia border) and is mostly in historic Harpers Ferry, the site of John Brown’s Raid and notable Civil War battles, and headquarters of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

Harpers Ferry is considered the “psychological midpoint” of the trail, although the actual midpoint is just west of Pine Grove Furnace State Park in Pennsylvania.
